Summary: I bought this camera after I gave away a Sony one. In all fairness, the one I purchased through Amazon is really a better choice in terms of price and quality. How easy to use this camera is really beyond my expectations, and so my wife and I now shoot a lot with it. In short, you won't complain about this camera.
Excerpt: Wow! I never imagined a powerful digital camera could be that small. Nikon has been among the top two camera brands in the world. Profesionalls and casual photographers alike are big Nikon fans. The CoolPix series of Nikon is designed for casual photographers who want to take professional quality pictures without having to know much about photography.
Summary: My camera is slightly different as it's older but I am very impressed with Nikon. It has lasted 2.5 years and is very sturdy. Pictures can be a bit blurry and the flash is a bit strong but I've got some lovely pictures and I don't ever worry about handling it with kid gloves. I would definitely recommend this, it's easy to use and has lots of lovely features, the firework mode and colour options are amazing.
